Middle-earth Hijacks Air New Zealand


The second installment of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy arrives in theaters on December 13, and Air New Zealand is ramping up their campaign to import as many tourists as possible to discover "Middle-earth" with a new in-flight video that has ordinary people transforming into characters from the J.R.R. Tolkien saga. Watch the Just Another Day in Middle-earth video!
